Abstract

Most of the energy resources that we use have many negative impacts on our environment such as air and water pollution. Natural gas, on the other hand, is one of the cleanest energy sources available today. Recently, there have been many advances in obtaining natural gas and putting it to use in homes and industrial settings. Compared to coal or propane, natural gas can save families and businesses thousands of dollars each year. This video gives an overview of how natural gas is formed, found, transported, and utilized in houses, industries, and transportation, and discusses how natural gas has the potential to fill our energy needs with less environmental degradation than other fossil fuels.
